The former Navy SEAL added: ‘The 95 percent viewer rating [which it was prior]audience rating, makes it all worth it.

We didn’t make it for the critics. We made it for those in the arena. We made it for the soldier, sailor, airman, and Marine that went downrange to Iraq and Afghanistan, so they could sit on the couch and say, ‘Hey, these guys put in the work. They put in the effort to make something special and make a show that speaks to them.”

‘And that 95 percent rating lets me know that we at least got close.’

The Amazon Prime series follows Lieutenant Commander James Reece, played by Chris, 43, after his platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed while on a covert mission. He then returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event

In a scathing review, The Guardian gave the series one star, describing it as a ‘terminally dull’ military thriller ‘that offers little intrigue or excitement’.

They wrote: ‘It’s a passion project for Pratt, who hasn’t been shy about his military obsession, but you wouldn’t know from watching the actor giving arguably his laziest performance to date, lethargically shuffling through scenes like he’s just here for the cash. , unable to bring any real shades of humanity to an admittedly half-a-note character.’

The Daily Beast slammed the series as an ‘unhinged right-wing revenge fantasy’ that panders to ‘male red-state viewers with routine references to beer, guns, country music, and hunting’.

In another negative review, Variety said the show is ‘a dour, miserable sit, one that would be tough to take as a two-hour film, and has been inexplicably roided up to eight hours.’

In a slightly more positive review, The Independent praised the performances of actresses Riley Keogh and Constance Wu but criticized the plot.

They wrote: ‘The plot, in as much as there is one, will make about as much sense to viewers as it does to the heavily concussed Reece.’

The publication added: ‘This was a chance to take a thriller framework and include meaningful exploration of trauma and other veteran-related struggles, accentuating bravery and heroism.

‘Instead, it’s leaden, mostly emotionless and if its pace is fast, that’s because anything important was removed.’

The Terminal List reviews

The Guardian: ‘It’s a passion project for Pratt, who hasn’t been shy about his military obsession, but you wouldn’t know from watching the actor giving arguably his laziest performance to date, lethargically shuffling through scenes like he’s just here for the cash. , unable to bring any real shades of humanity to an admittedly half-a-note character.’

The Daily Beast: ‘Given its suggestion that slaughtering your powers-that-be enemies for a righteous revenge cause is totally OK and very cool, the morality of showrunner David DiGilio and executive producer/director Antoine Fuqua’s eight-part series (July 1) is, let’s say, lacking.’

The Independent: ‘The plot, in as much as there is one, will make about as much sense to viewers as it does to the heavily concussed Reece’

Variety: The Terminal List is ‘a dour, miserable sit, one that would be tough to take as a two-hour film, and has been inexplicably roided up to eight hours’

Empire: ‘The plot is so simplistic there’s really no challenge to follow it. The far bigger challenge is maintaining any interest’

CNN: ‘Despite the promotional benefits of featuring star-producer Chris Pratt as a grittier kind of avenger, this brutal eight-episode slog squanders his talent in front of and behind the camera’

The Hollywood Reporter: ‘A dry, tasteless slab of red meat… It’s the entertainment equivalent of a charred hockey puck, with the same limited range of flavor and aesthetics’
